I am trying to compile a list of films in which elderly/older characters
shed their age when they die. The two examples I have thus far are THE
GHOST AND MRS. MUIR (1947) and TITANIC (1997).
I'm also interested in any films that present decades of a character's
life but suggest that young adulthood is the richest/best period of the
human life cyle.
If anyone can suggest some titles in these areas (particularly the
first), I'd really appreciate it.
